    Setting 'Initial View' preference to show 'Page' and 'Comment List' on opening would be great for me please (via Document Properties). Thanks.

  4. Bug: Formatting text (via Text Properties) in comments, insertions

    When I have a selection in an insertion and try using the Text Properties bar to change the font size, the focus regularly jumps away, the font size changes on its own, and/or the selected text deselects.

  6. Srikethrough marks should be more visible

    Strikethrough lines to mark text deletions and text revisions use only one line width that cannot be changed. The lines can be difficult to spot, especially when a full page is viewed or when the line's color blends with the text's color or the font's stroke width and the line's width are similar. With newer monitors having higher resolutions or graphics processors providing finer lines, strikethrough lines can appear very differently from the editor's monitor to the reader's monitor. A viewer's vision limitations should also be considered.
    Bottom line, allow strikethrough line width to be set to something higher than…

  7. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC ver 18.011.20058 continually freezes while highlighting. Any changes made are lost if not saved before freezing.

    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC ver 18.011.20058 continually freezes while highlighting. Any changes made are lost if not saved before freezing. Happens across multiple machines. Only way to restart editing is to use task manager and kill the process then reopen losing the changes made.

  8. Better support of Wacom for commenting

    I add a line/arrow/whatsoever with a Wacom Pen. If I want to add text close by, I often get caught by the handles of the previously, nearby added object. Actually it works much better to use MS Ink for handwritten comments. But then it is not within the PDF and I have to files. So please, give some thought on how to use pencils like Wacom more smoothly. BR, Michael

  9. Select object tool in Acrobat Standard

    The "Select object" tool is only available in the Pro version under "Rich Media". The tool is very useful for selecting text boxes and shapes. There is no alternative to the tool in the Standard version of Acrobat. Please make it or something similar available in the Standard version.

  10. Input double bytes comments

    When adding comments in Japanese at first, it is not available to input...maybe because double byte? Replying it was fine.

  11. shared review deadline and tracker functions

    I would like to be able to have a default setting for the review date. I want to have no deadline for 95% of all my cases. But every single time I need to manually set it to no deadline.

    Also I have noticed that I get error message when trying to open the adobe tracker icon if acrobat is not on. So I need to click ok on both before I can open the tracker inside acrobat. But if Acrobat is up an running it works.
    I have reinstalled Acrobat but the error comes back after a while.

  13. Do not automatically open comment pane

    Do not automatically open comment pane

    When choosing the Comment tools from the Tool pane, the Tool pane closes and the Comment pane opens automatically. Would be nice to have an option such that the comment pane doesn't automatically open. Most of the time I just want to highlight a few things without typing any actual comments.

  14. Image highlight (freehand) tool anywhere on page (including text)

    Image highlight (freehand) tool anywhere on page (including text)

    The image/freehand highlighter tool only appears when hovering the cursor over an image. However would be great to have the tool available over text or blank space on the pdf.

    Also the preview highlight thickness (before mouse button release) is not the same as the final highlight thickness (after mouse button release).

    For the text highlighter, it would be nice to be able to move the ends of the highlight by dragging (to highlight more or less text).

  15. Comments locked on for multiple documents

    I have to open multiple PDF invoices and put some information on each one (our promotion number, type of invoice, etc). Currently, every time I open an invoice, I need to select Comments and then select the type of comment that I want. This takes longer than typing in the comment itself. I would like a way to go into "comment mode," or lock my ability to have comments on for the duration of the session.

  16. Resize comment box to same level as other object when zomming in or out

    The comment markers are not resizing with the same level as the diagram and their position relative to the items in the diagram changes.

    can you make the comment boxes resize in the same level as the other object om a pdf page when zoming in or out in the future.

  17. Filter by unchecked still shows checked comments that I made.

    When I set comments to only show unchecked comments, but then I reply to an unchecked comment, then check both that comment and my comment, it won't filter these newly checked comments.

    I have to choose "show all comments" then filter by unchecked again for it to work. Please fix.

  18. Enable "Arrange Objects" for use with Markup Tools (Shapes/Lines)

    I'd like to request enabling the "Arrange Objects" button so that it can be used with Markup Objects (shapes & lines).

    It would be nice to "send to back" or "bring to front" on any object.

    Currently I have to:
    Copy an existing object
    Delete the existing object
    Paste a new copy of the object
    Re-align where that object should be

    This works ok if you want it in front but not easy to move it to back.

    Please enable this action button to be used with all objects.

  19. When I accept a suggested change (e.g. strike-through, strike-through/replace, or insert (caret), it does not result in a change in the pdf

    Is there a way to make this happen? I also tried exporting the pdf to Word and there was still no way to make the change happen automatically. I guess I should have exported the entire document to Word in the first place and done all my edits there. Now I have over 500 edits to insert by hand -- double the work.

  20. default font color for text boxes changes to last used color instead of staying the user defined "mark as default" color

    When changing an existing text box font color from the default color to a different color, the next time I open and use a text box, the font color is whatever color I last used.

    This is a nuisance, make it stop, if I set up a 'set as default' the font color for any 'new' text should stay that color, no matter if I change the font color later or not.

    The font color has different meanings (Actionable inputs) associated with the colors, when the action has been accomplished, I change the font color, this doesn't mean I want…
